How can I insert a new blank sheet (a new tab) into an existing Google Spreadsheet? I'm able to duplicate those that already exist on the bottom, but I can't find the menu option to insert a sheet.

This is the most basic thing to do in Excel, but none of the documentation seems to say a thing about doing it in Google Docs.

The bottom of the window will list your tabs on the left and have a couple options to the left of those. Clicking the + will add a new sheet.


You can also go to the Insert menu and choose New Sheet. That will add a new sheet directly to the right of the sheet that is currently active.
